Educational Trips and Visits

We believe that trips and visits greatly enhance children’s learning and we therefore go on lots of them. We are committed to the provision of regular educational visits for the children; to enhance the school curriculum and to give them experiences that develop their understanding of the curriculum and within their place within London and the wider world. Some of our trips include London’s art galleries and museums, local libraries and bookshops, Hampstead Heath, Coram Fields, kayaking in Camden Lock, Kew Gardens and Sutton House.

 

Year 6 attend a week’s residential at the end of their time in primary school. We strongly encourage all parents to allow their children to attend this valuable experience which promotes independence before moving onto secondary school.

Partnerships

In addition to arranging educational visits, the school regularly hosts visiting artists, musicians and authors who perform to the children and lead workshops. We have strong partnerships with The Royal Academy of Music, Orchestra of the Age of the Enlightenment, Cross Teach, Josh Seigal and Giorgio Locatelli to name a few.

As part of our raising Aspirations Programme we value our partnerships with The Ritz, the BBC, Derwent London, Walters and Cohen Architects and Outlandish along with many other new links we are making in 2020.

Trips and Visits 2021-22

We are very pleased to be able to go out on trips and visits again this year. This is a really important part of our educational provision to ensure we provide our children with a wide, rich set of experiences. Trips and visits enhance the school curriculum and give the children experiences that develop their understanding of their place within London and the wider world.

We will be keeping our risk assessment under constant review and if the situation changes regarding COVID at any point, this will be amended.

Abbey Farm

A selection of ten year 5 and year 6 children attend a residential visit each autumn to a working farm, to develop their confidence and independence in a safe and secure environment. We are very excited for this to be going ahead again this year.

Trips and Visits Pre-Covid 19

Trips and visits are a vital part of our school curriculum, and have been greatly missed since the Covid-19 pandemic began in March 2020. Some of our trips before the pandemic included London’s art galleries and museums, local libraries and bookshops, Hampstead Heath, kayaking at Camden Lock and Kew Gardens. Year 6 students also attend a week’s residential at Sayers Croft to mark the end of their time in primary school.

Last summer, as restrictions eased, each year group visited Hampstead Heath for an end of term celebration picnic.
